Oct 11 2023 – Author Talk – Nhung Tran-Davies – WorkWriteLife Balance
Nhung will tell us why and how she began her writing career, explain how she mined her life to select stories she thought might be interesting, why she chose to tell these stories to children rather than adults, where she found and how she worked with a like-minded illustrator, and what pitfalls and challenges she encountered with the writing, the publishing and the marketing of her books. She will also tell us how she balances her life as a physician with the demands of her writing.

About The Speaker:
Nhung’s books include a middle grade novel A Grain of Rice, a semi-autobiographical account of a young girl’s escape from Vietnam, and three picture books: The Doll, which tells the story of a doll gifted to the author when she first landed in Canada, Ten Cents a Pound, a story of a village girl torn between her desire to stay home with the family she loves and her longing to go to school and discover the world beyond the mountains, and Green Papayas, the tale of a child’s time with her aging grandmother. Nhung’s picture books are suitable for ages 5 to 10. They are beautifully illustrated and heart-rending.
